Welcome to the Sneaky Boy's Doghouse, Where everything is "perfect" and "nothing" is awry... There's no need to escape! Everydog loves it here! Enjoy your stay!

Enjoy my first mod of The Demon Within! A Classic Style Rogue-Like! I've eased the difficulty of the game comparative to The Demon Within!

Game Content

• 6 Dogs to love
• 34 Different Canine-Centric Items
• 7 Item Types
• A Mysterious, "Happy" Little Story
• Many Challenging Floors
• 10 Different Enemies


There are npc's in the game. Bump into them to talk with them!

Overall Score System

Simply put, it will either raise or lower your score counter based on
certain feats (i.e. striking enemies and evading enemies, etc.)
and certain mistakes (i.e. receiving enemy strikes, etc.)

Interactable Objects

Most objects that aren't the wall are interactable! Find out what they all do!

Game Strategy

This game is challenging and you may find yourself overwhelmed in the early game. There is a way around this! Try to look for the next floors' stairs first. then hunt down chests. If you run into a lot of enemies, you'll have a clear path of escape if you need it!

Sometimes you will run into a situation where you need to attack first. if you run across some objects on the floors. Bump into them to burn a turn so you can attack first!

Known Issues

• Wall Tile Generation Bug

• Trapped Room Bug: A very rare bug wherein the wall tiles prevent you
from leaving a floor's first generated room.

Additional Info

there are plenty of secrets to uncover and a "happy"
story to be told! Have fun!

If you're proud of your end game stats then post a screenshot or share your overall score in the comments!

This was originally designed for my 9 year old cousin to enjoy. I've fully fleshed out the idea since then!

Dropping by because I found this game on SPLORE and had a ball playing it. Really pure design. The game teaches you everything really well. The dungeon designs are always interesting and tense. Also liked the dog writing. Super cute. :) Thanks for sharing this!

@ohhcurtains thanks man! Glad you had fun! The writing was challenging but rewarding to finish. Favorite design part was animating the tail wag for ‘the sneaky boy’!

Really nice game design decisions, not a lot of words are needed to get the basics across :)

@taxicomics you’re probably right haha.

@ZadGhoul yeah that’s a very rare bug (I only find it once every few months). I’d have to ask for help to fix it because it’s beyond my knowledge.

I got to floor 43 on my first run and it was pretty fun. The resource starvation was insane though — I got a single healing item past floor ~20 and most of the items from the chests were junk. I liked the focus on stealth and positioning alongside the lack of a wait button forcing you to consider how you want to waste a turn to attack first. One annoyance I had with cursed armor was that since I could not take it off once I put it on, I wanted to make sure what I put on was going to be effective, but I couldn't see how effective the armor would be before I put it on.

@Hoxatron I’m glad you liked the harder floors and the strategy you need to use to move past them. Wow floor 43 for your first run! That’s crazy! You’re one of the select few people who saw the abandoned safe room! がんばりました!

Nice mod of the orignal game. Only slightly better than my run on the orignal game with 10 less health though...
